Ram is the second studio albumby Paul McCartney, released in May 1971 on Apple Records. The album was recorded amid Paul McCartney's legal action in Britain's High Court to dissolvethe Beatles' partnership, following their break-up the year before. This is the only album credited to the couple. He and Linda recorded it in New York with guitarists David Spinozzaand Hugh McCracken, and future Wings drummer Denny Seiwell. Its release coincided with a period of bitter acrimony between McCartney and his former bandmate John Lennon, who perceived verbal slights in the lyrics to songs such as "Too Many People".
